Quote from: zhulien on 04:54, 26 October 21UniDOS Scanning.In a simple install, M4+XMem+YMem+X-Mass, it scans very fast. As soon as I add a PlayCity, it can take a while.

Quote from: OffseT on 20:10, 03 February 22Since I do not know when further fixes will occur, I decided to release the long standing M4 DOS node 1.22 which has the FTP drive activated (it is more than 6 months old actually).M4 Board firmware v2.0.8 or better is required to make it work, but as explained in the documentation of UniDOS website it won't be fully functionnal yet.Some additional fixes might be required in M4 Board firmware to make if work at 100% but Duke do not have time to investigate on his side for now... and on my side I do not have access to a M4 Board anymore.BTW, you can at least have a try, and maybe someone will find a workaround to get it work 100% with the current M4 firmware. Here is a small video of the FTP network drive feature:http://amsnet.chez.comMore information at:https://unidos.cpcscene.net

Quote from: XeNoMoRPH on 22:35, 03 February 22M4 Board firmware v2.0.8 ... where is this version ?
Quote from: Cwiiis on 23:25, 21 February 22I was just updating unidos on my machine and noticed there's now a patched firmware which would be very handy on the Plus... Has anyone had any success with it? If I flash it, it's clearly corrupt (nonsense rom name and version) and I can't boot from it... I guess the file isn't formatted the same as the other rom files on the site? (which all flash fine) Anyone had any joy with it on the X-MEM?

Patched firmware is not required for optimal compatibility.Anyway, the firmware ROM files from UniDOS web site are using the same file format than other ROMs.About ROM name and ROM version, it is normal, because the firmware ROM (which is a lower ROM) do not matches the other ROMs tags (which are upper ROMs).Are you sure that you actually flashed the firmware ROM in the lower slot and not in an upper ROM slot?
Quote from: Cwiiis on 15:29, 16 March 22I'd be interested in hearing exactly how someone replaced rom 7 on a Plus without a custom cartridge.
Quote from: TotO on 18:41, 16 March 22@Cwiiis You can use a D-ROM board or a M4 board to do that. The MegaFlashGordon is a old design clone of the Mega Flash that do not provide extra-features like booting from a different firmware.

Quote from: OffseT on 19:02, 16 March 22Well, the (Mega)FlashGordon is just perfect, it is small and efficient and provides manual switch for alls ROMs, ROM 0 (hacker) and ROM 7.Very little people actually needs to replace the firmware (I never did).
Quote from: TotO on 21:14, 16 March 22I'm not here to say what peoples actually needs, just to let known there is more alternative. If Cwilis own a C4CPC, it is the best to use in fact. No need to add something on the expansion port. If I'm not wrong, it is required to program the DOS on the physical ROM3 to be seen as logical ROM7?
Quote from: Cwiiis on 19:04, 16 March 22I'll test it out on the RSF3 - it has the option, but you have to explicitly enable it... Which felt risky, but sounds like it's not an issue, so I'll try it out
Quote from: OffseT on 01:24, 17 March 22Sure, but as he said that he preferred not to use the C4CPC and asked how to replace the ROM 7 while using the regular cartridge
Quote from: TotO on 12:38, 17 March 22He said he can replace it by using a custom cart or the C4CPC, but that introduced a lot of instability with expansions and you answered that he can replace the ROM7 by using a romboard while using a regular cartridge.So, the problem is more to know why he has instability by using the C4CPC on his Plus. Better to ask to @gerald or other unidos users to try to find the real problem a not a workaround.
